Le Feuillu -
Sunday May 6, 2018

Culture : Le Feuillu, aussi écrit anciennement « Folliu », « Folhiu » ou « Foeillu », est une fête qui se rattache à l'antique tradition des « quêtes de mai » répandues dans toute l'Europe. Elle peut également être rapprochée de la « Fête du Fou » (le fou étant dérivé de fagus, hêtre) ainsi qu'à celle des « Maïentzets » ou encore à celle de l'arbre de mai. Cette fête aurait été à l'origine un rite paysan de type païen, probablement d'origine celtique et dont le but est de célébrer le retour du printemps. Au XVIe siècle, Calvin la fit interdire dans les communes genevoises. [Wikipedia]
